Good morning from pleasantly cool and Happy Larryville, GN! (Sure glad we caught the southern end of the polar vortex and get a little relief from the heat the next few days.)

Appreciate today’s thread pic; thanks for your ongoing Thread Lad work, Mac.

If this concept were scaled-up (and had a ginormous wood chipper incorporated into it), I think it would be a fine method for dealing with DC:

Sven --

I’m pretty sure I know precisely the exit from the 101 (and overpass) you mentioned yesterday; sort of a surprising ending to your anecdote.

Yeah, unexpected, but pleasant to see.

Good morning, Fatwa; glad it’s cooler your way; some drop in temps here as well.

Was thinking about the Five Most Dangerous Cats in America this morning. My list:
5. White cats
4. Black cats
3. Short-haired cats
2. Alley cats
1. LoLCats

And Hello Kitty too. I’ll have to expand my areas of research.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac! (I know -- I really shouldn’t use the Oxford comma, but that is the way I was taught.)
It seems that LOLcats and Hello Kitty bring out the talkative side of y’all -- interesting.

Loved the story from yesterday, Sven. That’s one of those things you wish you’d see more of, but don’t.

Blues guitar legend Johnny Winter passed away (older brother to Edgar Winter).
Here’s a little Mississippi Blues:

Hai, Paddy!

I forgot Hello Kitty.

Hello Kitty is not amused:

Hadn’t heard about Johnny Winter.

Just did a parody Salon Tweet about him earlier today; bad timing on my part.

Bad timing, but I snoggle-snorted anyway!

Well…at least it wasn’t bagging on Mr. Winter.

A Malaysian Airlines 777 appears to have been shot down over Ukraine; early reports indicate that Ukranian separatists thought it was a Ukranian military plane.

Sad “heh”…because some moron will find a “linkage”.

How does our President respond to the downing of an Air Malaysia jet with 23 American citizens onboard? Why he goes on a photo op, of course! Later, he’ll fly to NY for a scheduled fundraiser. We can’t have any pesky international incidents interfere with our fundraising, now can we?

“It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.”

Until it’s confirmed to be a terrible tragedy, he’ll just go have a burger and then fly to NYC -- on our dime -- to hoover up more money.

From CNN

The United States has concluded the Malaysian airline was shot down, a senior U.S. official told CNN’s Barbara Starr. One radar system saw a surface-to-air missile system turn on and track an aircraft right before the plane went down Thursday, according to the official. A second system saw a heat signature at the time the airliner was hit, the official said. The United States is analyzing the trajectory of the missile to try to learn where the attack came from.

Is that enough of a “terrible tragedy” for you, Mr. Present?
My disgust-o-meter is pegging.

You must be mistaken, Paddy: this president doesnt do photo ops.

And in all fairness to President Obama, it probably was a good burger. You know that when the bear is loose, you gots to feed him.

It’s about time for another hashtag thing from the White House, isn’t it? Perhaps another one with a sad Michelle posing with a sign that reads #sadtooucrane. Cuz nuthin’ says leadership like a tweet!

Of course.

“It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.”

“May”.
“May”.
Who’s the freakin’ s00per genius who wrote that on the digital index card for President Putt?
Hmmm. Maybe a passive-aggressive way to show how much he really doesn’t care?

I’ve been yelling at the TV, “It was shot down you idiots! On purpose. It became accidental after they found out what they’d painted with the missile’s radar. NOW it’s CYA time.”

Welcome to 1983, y’all. With, unfortunately the absolute polar opposite of Reagan in the White House.

This week has passed at lightning speed, and we hit deadline a week from Monday. This ought to be a blast; I’ve probably got ’til Wednesday to get all MY sh¡t done, and my sh¡t keeps moving down the calendar days because I’m tied up proofing Useless’s work. My only entertainment comes from wrapping Teh Mangler™ around the axle, but even that’s so easy it’s losing its shine.
::sigh²::

I’m ready for the weekend and the scheduled naps that come with them!

*mwah!* y’all
